    Shared Memories

    Read each memory»

    Beloved mother, grandmother, and friend, Irene Betor returned to the arms of her beloved husband, Jim, January 23, 2017. She is survived by her daughters, Kerry Costello, Tracy Harrington (Steve), Pam Kumpel (Scott), Colette Christensen, and Michaela Popp (Michael); and grandchildren, Allie and Deirdre Harrington, Lauren and Hayley Kumpel, Sean Costello, and Chloe and Lillie Christensen.

    Irene was born on November 21, 1928, in Liverpool, England to Edith (Butler) and Peter Donohue. Irene attended Bellerive FCJ School and received her degree in teaching from Sedgley College, now part of the University of Manchester. She moved to Seattle in 1952 and taught at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School in Burien.

    Though Irene became a US citizen in 1959, Liverpool was always home. We grew up with stories of her childhood, from running along the train tracks and walls of Liverpool and spending holidays on the English coast, to her evacuation to Wales during WWII and living in fear of bombs dropping in the Liverpool Blitz. She had us going for a number of years, but we know now that the Beatles did not run...
